Here are the meanings of the operators:

The operation X # Y means concatenate X+Y into XY.
AUSTRIA # BENIN = AUSTRIABENIN

The operation X & Y means that, for each letter occurrence in Y, remove one occurrence of that letter from X if possible.
AUSTRIABENIN & UZBEKISTAN = RAIN

The operation X = Y means that Y is an anagram of X.
RAIN = IRAN
